Your Radiation Therapy Plan
As every patient’s cancer condition and recovery is unique, so should be your treatment plan. We offer patients greater reassurance by keeping you involved throughout your treatment planning, giving you confidence every step of the way.
The first step in deciding the role of radiation therapy is staging. In the staging phase, your care providers will determine where the cancer is, where the cancer may be, and where it is not.
Once staging is complete, care providers will work with you and your family to determine your goals for treatment.
With your input, our team of care providers will work collaboratively to help reach your goals. At Our treatment plans are developed to ensure all of our specialists — in both Kenosha County and at Froedtert & Medical College of Wisconsin — are in agreement with the treatment plan.
To ensure efficient treatment and recovery, we’ll work to develop a cancer treatment plan over a time horizon of days, not weeks, to avoid unnecessary delay. Our goal is to consult with all patients 2 to 3 days after receiving a referral.
Incorporating modern approaches, we quickly collaborate with other physician specialists such as virtual tumor boards. In these settings, advanced physicians super-specialized for a particular disease review the biopsy, images, and findings to arrive at patient oriented next best steps.
After a thorough assessment and review, we apply radiation therapy using the most modern approaches and techniques in a way that is consistent with the philosophies of an entire team of advanced physician specialists—and help reach your goals for a happier, healthier life after recovery.
